BOWLING GREEN — Bowling Green police are asking for the public’s help in finding three suspects in a kidnapping and sexual assault involving teenage girls at a hotel.
Police were called shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday to the Wood County Hospital for reports of sexual assaults involving 13- and 14-year-old sisters, Bowling Green Deputy police Chief Justin White said.
The girls were staying at a hotel in the 1700 block of East Wooster Street with their mother when the alleged incident occurred, Deputy Chief White said. The teens were held against their will and sexually assaulted, police reported.
